Okay, so I just ordered my 70d upgrading from my 60d. I plan on shooting my first short film in the coming month. I know I want to have a wide lens, but otherwise any suggestions on some solid lenses would be awesome. I'm probably gonna spend $500 on a lens and rent the rest.
Okay onto the question. I am a novice videographer and so far I've made a decent intro into the craft with just my kit lenses on my 600D & 500D, now I want to step up my arsenal for better front end quality. I initially didn't want to invest too much money and then later realize "HEY YOU SUCK AT THIS" or "HEY I DON'T LIKE THIS". Thankfully none of those seem to be reality (yet) and hopefully never. I've already made up my mind about getting the Canon EF 50mm 1/8.

I've just upgraded to a Canon 600d and wondered if someone could give me a straight forward answer about which lens to choose for film, without all the indepth technical stuff. (Cheaper the better, because i'm still learning).
I'm after makes/models that will fit the Canon 600d with links if possible.
Cheers in advance

I've posted quite a few bits of info concerning Canon DSLR's that dealt primarily with the technical aspects of cameras like the 5DmkII, 7D and 1DmkIV such as exposure ratings, and CMOS issues. Even found you guys some hardcore videos comparing DSLR's head-to-head against film cameras!
Always on the lookout for innovative workarounds for the indie filmmaker, I came across this video by Matt S for a $5 Follow Focus rig.
I am looking to purchase a camcorder, and I am wondering what others think about the HD vs SD dilemma, especially with regards to wildlife subjects. I am an aspiring wildlife filmmaker and so far have shot all of my footage in HD (on a Sony FX1 and Canon XHA1). I am happy with the quality of the footage I shot on these cameras, but for wildlife filming longer lenses would obviously be a benefit. Here is a link to my showreel if you would like to see some of my footage: EXAMPLE FOOTAGE.
